Start making plans right now for Carlisle 2019. This coming year will see some changes, and the first of these is this: we have a nicer hotel with cheaper rooms—$129 a night.
We’ll be at The Marriott Shippensberg and, instead of running out to Caddy Shack on Thursday evening, we’ll have a barbecue right on the hotel patio, which features a fire pit and a grill. Look at this place!
The place also has a full bar and we’re getting a much bigger hospitality room that can double as a dining room if it rains. It’s a sweet setup.
We’re also getting well-lit, exclusive parking in the rear of the building
and a free breakfast buffet on Friday morning. Shippensberg is a college town with other meal options close by (I’ll have more on those later). And of course for you egg sammich partisans it’s 23 miles from the fairgrounds, about half an hour. No tolls.
Alan “Dr. Clock” Merklin is working up a short cruise in the hills nearby, since it’s close to his old stomping grounds. He’ll have more soon on the room block.
I’ve got more to share about the weekend's festivities and will be blowing the horn about it often and loudly in the coming months. Save the dates now: May 16-19, and get ready to grab your showfield passes when the sale starts.
